MEXICO (WSET) - What seems like an aggressive shark attack, two people say was just a great white shark lunging after some bait.

In the video submitted to ABC News by Gabe and Garrett, the shark smashes into the cage, breaking through the metal.

They say when a shark lunges and bites something it temporarily goes blind. They also said sharks cannot swim backwards.

Gabe and Garrett say the shark was confused after hitting the cage and that is why it broke through the metal.

There was a diver in the cage, who Gabe and Garrett say is experienced and was not hurt.

They credit the crew for opening the top to the cage so the shark was able to get free.
